The Labour unions have expressed worry over the refusal of some state governors to pay the national minimum wage, in spite of the economic challenges in the country.
President of Trade Union Congress, BOBOYE KAIGAMA expressed this worry in a statement in Abuja as part of activities to mark the 2017 May Day.
KAIGAMA also challenged the governors to look at other means of boosting their internally generated revenue, apart from the monthly allocation from the federation account which they depend on.
He also urged governments at all level to take positive steps to revive the nation’s economy to cushion the economic effects faced by citizenry.
The TUC President hinted that workers have a significant role to play in any country by creating wealth and boosting the socio-economic well being of that nation.
Commenting on the whistle-blower policy of the federal government, KAIGAMA urged the legislative arms of government to key into the policy, by backing it with law that would protect the blowers.
